So this week saw the arrival of February, which is Caspian’s and my birthday month. Hopefully, we’ll have a great time next week when he turns two on the same day I hit 34. To start the celebrations early you can enter to win some lovely children’s wear from Sense Organics and delicious Valentine’s Day chocolate, too. Plus keep your eye out for a giveaway for a beautiful gold necklace with a rough diamond pendant.

The colour theme for February on my Instagram account is pink, so you’ll see most of the photos incorporating this colour in various shades.  It helps to brighten up what can otherwise be a dark and grey month weatherwise as we wait for spring to arrive.

It's almost February which means it's Caspian and my birthday in two weeks! Have a wonderful week x

I’m excited to be working with international company We Are Knitters. I’m not a knitter, but I’ve heard it’s lovely and stress relieving, which I definitely need plus they have products for all levels, even complete beginners like me.

You can read all about the cute mug above in this post. I’m not a big coffee drinker, but I love a creamy mocha, especially on a cold and rainy afternoon.

I really needed to read this quote as I’ve been struggling to focus. Simply because of tiredness, not having family around to lend a hand with Caspian is hard. I have him more or less full time and I’m trying to work as well, so it’s a bit of a balancing act.

As you might have seen I recently lost a close friend and it’s been hard to deal with as it was very unexpected. Though some lovely friends that I have made through blogging sent me this beautiful bunch of flowers to try and cheer me up.

Love my @passionplanner I treated my mum to one as well.
